  • Culturally Modified Trees: Legacy of the Ute Tribes | The Friends of the Florissant Fossil Beds
    Culturally modified tree Note ragged edge at top probably from the bark being cut with sharpened stone and pulled down Photo Jo Beckwith When peeling trees the Utes would make a horizontal cut through the bark on the outside of the tree with a hatchet or sharp stone Hatchets made straight lines while a sharp stone left jagged lines After making a cut on the tree a sharpened branch or pole was placed under the cut and the bark was pried away from the tree Strips of inner bark were then removed from the outer bark with a scraper Culturally modified tree near Guffey Colorado Healing tissue generally obscures tool marks Photo Jo Beckwith The oval or rectangular shaped scars left by the Utes on ponderosa pine trees can be very large up to eight feet long and two feet wide Not all scars found on trees were made by Utes Forest fires leave a triangular shaped scar with the widest edge along the bottom of the tree Scars caused by lightning are long and thin extending along the length of the tree At times lightning scars spiral around the tree Animals like elk porcupine and bear also leave scars which are often visible Tree ring dating conducted by Golden archaeologist Marilyn Martorano at several Colorado sites shows that the Utes peeled most of the culturally scarred trees between 1815 and 1875 Martorano 1981 This period was one of profound change in Colorado First trappers arrived then miners came searching for gold and finally farmers and ranchers followed all pushing the Utes from their land As more people swarmed into the region food became scarce This led the Utes to peel trees for food at a greater rate Culturally modified tree Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument Florissant Colorado The width and length of these scars vary NPS Photo There are at least 17 culturally modified trees in the Blue Mountain area of Pike National Forest at least 26 modified trees in Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument and a number of modified trees over 200 years old in the Manitou Experimental Forest north of Woodland Park Although the National Historic Preservation Act protects these trees from human activity this important archaeological resource is quickly disappearing as these trees begin to die from natural causes The maximum lifespan of the ponderosa pine tree is between 300 to 600 years so further research is vitally important before this archeological information is lost forever Culturally modified tree in a ponderosa pine forest Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument The soft inner bark of the tree is high in calcium Photo D Atkins References Martorano M A 1981 Scarred Ponderosa Pine Trees Reflecting Cultural Utilization of Bark Unpublished M A thesis Department of Anthropology Colorado State University Fort Collins Colorado Styrd A 1998 Culturally Scarred Trees of British Columbia A Handbook for the Identification and Recording of Culturally Scarred Trees Arcas Consulting Archaeologists Ltd B C Ministry of Forests This entry was posted in History by
